Daffodils will fail to bloom if they are planted too deeply, are overcrowded, or if the foliage was removed before it had a chance to ripen and turn brown on its own. Daffolils should be planted only 3-4" deep. If they are too deeply planted they will run out of energy before reaching the soil surface. Wait until the foliage turns brown then dig your daffodils and replant them - this time only 3-4" deep. Best wishes with your bulbs!
